A few years ago I read the book “Same Kind Of Different As Me” and learned about an organization in Fort Worth called Union Gospel Mission. The story this book told was about an unlikely friendship between a Fort Worth Art dealer and a homeless gentleman who met through Union Gospel.
Our intentions in volunteering are usually to give hope to those impoverished individuals in the community. The irony of our own lives being drastically changed comes as a complete surprise.
As a Â company, we are attending orientation at Union Gospel Mission over the next few weeks to become trained volunteers. It will be exciting to give back to the community of DFW.
